Not having installed TL2007 I can't really confirm it, but if you  
install via the MacTeX packages there should definitely not be a  
problem. If you install in some other way, you would have to set a  
symbolic link from /usr/texbin to wherever the TL2007 executables are  
(in particular, the executable kpsewhich).

My TeX installation actually doesn't have the package documentation  
at all with it, so I can't even test the command at all. Brad Miller  
is more familiar with that command, perhaps he can answer the question.

I remember seeing in the mactex mailing list though, that there were  
some problems with the documentation links in TL2007, so that the  
"texdoc" command wouldn't work properly.
